Introducing your president-elect hopefuls! The Nominating Committee will be forwarding two fine candidates for the position of President-Elect: Aaron Norment and Jimmy Barrera. After serving as President-Elect, the successful candidate will become TAS President in 2025. In keeping with long-standing TAS tradition, we are alternating every year between avocational and professional presidential nominees. Avocational archeologist Diedre Hood will be President in 2024, so the 2025 candidates are both professional archeologists.
We asked Jimmy and Aaron to submit a short blurb and photo, by way of introduction. You can read what the candidates provided on the TAS website here: https://www.txarch.org/2023-TAS-Election/. Pending final approval by the Board in August, when the nominations are made official, these candidates will appear on the ballot for President-Elect this October. Voters will also have the opportunity to name their own write-in candidates.
Remember to vote online during the Annual Meeting. You do not have to attend the meeting to vote, but you do have to be a current member.
